I have a buddy that lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
- The two of us actually found each other since we write and self publish online.
Her and I ended up reading each other’s books and started messaging back and forth. The two of us live on opposite ends of the country so it is cool how different our lives are. I talk about the snow and cold while she talks about the heat. I mention the intense sports fans of our area while she talks about history buffs. After hearing about Albuquerque, New Mexico, I do want to go there one day. It would be cool to visit her and also to see some of the things she is talking about. She has mentioned eating establishments with homemade baked goods, local artists painting on the streets and the shopping hub of the old town. I suppose for a long weekend it could be a great trip. I especially want to go there for all the crafts too; My pen pal makes jewelry. She uses metals, stones and hand creates all of her pieces. I have looked at her website and bought a necklace, bracelet and earrings before. I entirely would love to see her store and look at her pieces in person. When I can, I try to ship her the freshly grown grapes and a bottle of our family’s homemade booze to her. It is something neat to our area as well. I believe she has talked about visiting me up north. I hope I see her first however. I suppose our section will be a letdown after her residing in New Mexico her whole life.
